Last month, Eric posted about the great 8-Bit Hymnal – some traditional hymns remixed to 8-bit video game style music. With Christmas coming along, you can now get some more great 8-bit Christmas goodness!
Tyler Larson has put together 15 different carols (there are 16 tracks – two version of Away in a Manger!) that you can download for FREE from Noisetrade.
Did you see Bob Dylan’s interactive music video?
If not, you have to!
Promoting Bob Dylan’s The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1, an interactive video of Like a Rolling Stone has been put together in a TV like fashion. Using Interlude‘s Treehouse technology, this music video presents itself like a regular television that can be surfed channel to channel.
The results are pretty EPIC.
Imagine if a office building was transformed into a giant Rubick’s Cube for you to solve?
That’s what Javier Lloret imagined and then turned it into a reality using some really cool tech.
Called the Puzzle Facade, here’s how it works:
Remember when you’d only take photos on a special occasion? Maybe you bought a disposable camera or a role of film (or even two!). Anyway, however many photos you took, it was easy to organize them in a physical photo album.
Fast forward 10 years or more and digital cameras (and more specifically smartphones) have completely revolutionized how we take photos in many ways, but in particular the number of photos. Now keeping thousands of photos organized is a tough business. Being able to quickly find that one photo from that great occasion or look at those events becomes more difficult the more photos that you have.
Step in Loom (and some good practices).
After three months and 25,000 dominos, this EPIC domino relay was created.
In technical domino YouTube jargon, this is known as a “screenlink”:
“Each clip is separate then edited together to make it look like one long setup. The first half are my clips (built in USA) then at 1:35 it switches to millionendollarboy’s (built in Germany.) This was a collab video so it was impossible to do one take, not to mention how much floor space and dominoes would be needed.”
It’s cool to see how these guys have used YouTube to further their fun with domino screenlinks. Who would have ever thought of being able to do a three month, Transatlantic collaborative domino project?
This infographic below takes a look at branding in the sense of business, but really, the concept of branding has a far greater reach than just the marketplace. These same concepts can be used for churches, ministries and nonprofit organizations.
Like it says at the beginning of this infographic, your online brand is like your storefront. Or in the case of a church, it’s the front door. Nonprofits, it’s your headquarters.
“A brand consists of the associations and emotions that people hold about your
company organization, products cause or service mission.”
This is #EPIC.
As an audio/video production geek, I found this to BE SO FLIPPIN’ AWESOME!!!
The tech, production and teamwork behind every NFL game that airs on FOX Sports puts the game of football to shame. It’s far more complicated and involves so many more team players than the game that’s actually being aired!
I would love to sit in some of these…
Take a look:
While ChurchMag’s new logo design is currently in the hands of one of the most talented designers I know, I am currently trying to design a logo for Finding Justice with the help of Mark Robinson. Finding Justice has been generic and unbranded for almost a year now, but as it begins to pick-up steam, it’s time that it settled into an identity and have some banding applied to it.
In general, blogs should stay fairly generic until they get enough traction to warrant the time and attention for the branding process. I’ve been involved in several different ventures—both my own and others—and I have found this to be a good way to go about it.
So, as I kick around ideas and draw up some mock-ups, I found this infographic pretty enlightening. I think there’s a pattern, here, can you find it?
